Wanna Fly a Plane?

Recommended Posts

Hehehe ... thanks for invite, Nik, but I'll give it a pass this time. In the good old days, over the huge red desert of central Australia, I once found myself in the flight deck of a cruising 747-200, and we touched the yoke to demo the autopilot. A bit only lah.


Btw my concern is more on innocent ppl and properties on the ground. :D


I am sure those in the air are also equally concerned about their own lives, and with this spirit self preservation, i am sure those on the ground need not be unduly worried.


Walter, let's confirm our meeting at 10am, with my Subang office being the venue. Capt Norhisham will be joining us as well. You'll need to take a security pass at the MAS Complex entrance. If you have any problem getting there, call me.

For directions please refer to map below;



The briefing as I have stated is optional. For some, who already have flying experience professionally or on a casual basis, the briefing will be a piece of cake. For the rest, the briefing will be useful as it will serve to prepare you for your flight experience. You will get better appreciation of your flight if you can anticipate the chain of events and will derive best return for the money you spend.


We will also be joined by instructors from the flying club, notably Mr Mohd Razeef and a few of his colleagues.


Please prepare a deposit of RM150 for aircraft booking on the night of the briefing.

It would be great if you do a short quick read over the internet about the basic principles of flights, most importantly terminologies and terms used in flying. The briefing document contains some simple common used terms and definition. The rest can be read from online. Some websites that are useful; do give them a look.

Park your cars just in front of the terminal here, the spaces here are usually empty during the weekends



We will meet up here, just outside the doors. Do not wander too far or else we won't be able to find you.



Subang Flying Club will be providing us the flying experience.


Thats all! See you guys on Thursday night for the briefing.






Those who cannot make it on the 23rd, Capt Nik might be planning on organising another one depending on the outcome of the first outing on the 23rd. If possible, it will happen some time around next month.

Don't think so... Who works on saturdays anyways :D. Theres always an alternative just opposite a pay per entry carpark. RM1.50 i think. You can go there for a safer option but i think it would not be a problem...

Capt Nik


Due to something important that has cropped up, I won't be able to join you guys this Saturday but I wish the project all the success. I really want to meet the group but now even the next session looks difficult for me to attend. My apologies, Nik.
